Looking at ordering a few sets of H-beam forged rods for the Swift G13b engine (standard GTi size).

I am close to placing the order and if I buy more the price comes down to 'about' £230-£250 a set (depending on import fee's).

If there is any interest let me know as I will purchase more.

Will place the order next week mate, just waiting for a few people to get their money together and I can go ahead with the purchase.

Also waiting on a price for the g13b rods in Titanium, will most likely be a silly price but you never know...

I will let you all know the costs (should know in a few hours).

May end up with a bunch of super light weight over k!ll Titanium rods bounce .

I will send you a PM Atchi...

I have talked to the place that sells the h-beam rods for £280 and thats their best price and its cheap... I know someone that has used them and they worked fine... as for a difference in quality????.

I currrently have 4 engines to build so its worth while getting a batch done as I will need more next year.

I am having them custom made for high RPM/Turbo G13b engine.

jones wrote:What BHP and what RPM can they take before they snap??

These are overkill for the swift but no to heavy....

They will have a logo on them, have not decided what to call them yet (any ideas?).

The order will take 38days + 5 days postage... so they will be ready after xmass.

If people wan't to paypal me a deposit down thats fine, but I am buying them anyway so it does not matter.

Just really need to know how many people are interested so I can get enough made.

Garndi, is there any way you could get a set of these again at some point in the new year?

Christmas is gonna wipe me out, again! So even just after im still gonna be broke Sad

Or is this a one time only, miss it and miss out thing? If so how long would a small deposite now hold me a set for? When would i have to cough up the rest?

Thanks mate Smile

Yeah, if they sell well I can purchase more, but being items for swifts... business is sloooow in the sales department!.

They won't arrive to mid Jan 2012. I am getting a few extra sets to sell through out next year so you should be ok.

Don't worry I will order you a set, when they arrive we can have a chat about payment.

Ok, the deal is final I just have to send the cash to them.

I have been in loooong negotiating with the company, wanting to make sure everything is 100%.

They have agreed to provide me the following.

SAE certified 4340 Steel (high carbon which is far superior to the low carbon 51 series steel used in most OEM forged rods)
2 Piece forging, Hardness of HRC33-38, Dowelled cap for precision alignment, X-RAY & Sonic tested, Quenching and heat treated, 100% Magnafluxed, Weight Matched Sets + - 1 gram, Sizing + - 0.0001",Balanced, Silicon bronze bushing (little end).

Also that the specifications are as follows :
Center to Center : 120.00mm
Big End : 45.00mm
Pin Diam : 19.00 mm
Big end width : 22.00mm
Little end width : 22.00mm

Paypal payment is fine, but I am now going to wait until they arrive/clear customs before I take cash.

ETA will be around the end of Jan atm.
